I recently had a discussion with Gonçalo (no need to click the link – his blog is about as active as the Sahara desert) regarding how or if we humans can get ourselves out of this mess we’ve put ourselves in: unsustainable economy, overpopulation, fossil fuel dependence, and resource depletion – only to mention a few.
I think we both came to the conclusion that the situation is already beyond any controlled solution. Not saying that we are helplessly going towards extinction, but the necessary changes will arrive in a much less pleasant fashion, such as by war, a worldwide epidemic, or famine.
With the recent developments in Ukraine, I can’t help recalling this discussion. And even if a European conflict may not spread worldwide, Sweden is all too close and strategically located to stay unaffected.
Times may be changing. Where do we stand once such changes have passed?
